Nice couch roger.
tank looks well too
Couple of pictures:
Coral reaction to a combination of "Reef Energy" and Coral paste.
He's settled in nicely and taking Mysis.
Well, up's and down's............as usual these days!
The Copper Band lasted all of a week (I know it was going to be a mistake) while it was eating in the shop, it wouldn't touch a thing in my tank.
On the up side all the Aiptasia have gone!!.......I killed a few with Aiptasia-X (out of desperation) and they just haven't re-appeared (after 2 weeks) also the "snot" algae seems to be dieing off at long last and I havent lost any more corals.
In fact there seems to be a bit of a coral growth spurt going on.......which is always welcome.
And I have a question.............what (if anything) do I need to do when SPS coral grows up to the water line?
Sad news about your copper band, nearly bought one several times.
TBH I should have ( and do) know better.
I'll not make that mistake again.
shame about the CB buddy don't be getting another
think when your sps's reach the surface they grow along the waters edge best of fragging them and passing them on :whistling:
I might have too:
they've reach the surface Roger time to get the snips out
Any idea what it is?.........and "yes" I know it's an SPS!
Cheers Nev, I was wondering!
Do you think it could be this one http://www.atlantisaquarium.net/products/acropora-abrolhosensis
CHeers fella, so it's a "Pink Tip Hairy Green Stag".......who would have guessed............I knew Nev was wrong!
Did you see it also said
see more acropora
I'll get mi coat
Ahh, Acropora Green Hairy Pink tipius!
Some pictures, just to prove everything is still alive!!
Very nice Roger. Cant wait to see your tank again it looks to be doing amazingly well.
Never mind your tank doing well, was wondering if you were
Tanks looking awesome matey, you must be pleased.
Are all your aips gone now ?
Cheers chaps, both (me and tank) doing fine thanks.........both showing signs of age, although for the tank, it's a good thing!!
Tank: "Snot" algae near as dammit gone, corals stopped stripping and now growing, GHA gone after replacing a blown Cheato bulb, fish fine and dandy.
Me: Still loosing hair, back f&*%$d and tired (need holiday)!!
Right.................I'm going to be shutting the tank down for, probably, a couple of months.
Mainly due to work and the real world the tank is not getting the attention it deserves, and we all know SPS corals demand that attention. I've also got a real bugger of a problem with some odd algae, that just when I think I've gotten it beaten come back with a vengeance.
The idea is to sell all my livestock (and maybe some uneeded hardware) kill off the live rock and start again, but this time it will be a LPS dominated tank, with maybe the odd Monti species coral (probably a couple of plates).
I'll be starting a sales thread in the relevant sections later today.
The annoying thing is having to sell corals (and fish) that I will actually want when the tank is set up again, but history has proven that trying to keep stuff alive in less than ideal conditions is a bad idea.
It's going to be an interesting journey................................
